  • Patent number: 10736287
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a cucumber plant of the species Cucumis sativus carrying a genetic determinant that leads to a darker green stem in the seedling stage that is predictive of a darker green color of the fruits as compared to an isogenic cucumber plant not carrying the said genetic determinant, which genetic determinant is as comprised in a cucumber plant representative seed of which was deposited with the NCIMB under deposit number NCIMB 41859. The genetic determinant is suitably introgressed into the cucumber plant from a cucumber plant of which representative seed has been deposited with the NCIMB under deposit number NCIMB 41859.

  • Patent number: 10736288
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a parthenocarpic cucumber fruit (Cucumis sativus L.) having a small seed cavity. A parthenocarpic cucumber fruit (Cucumis sativus L.) having a small seed cavity has a lower total moisture content.

  • Patent number: 10697003
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a marker for identifying a cucumber plant showing a compact growth phenotype, characterized by a shorter internode length and/or a smaller leaf area. The marker comprises a mutation in the Cullin1 gene, thereby providing cucumber plants with a shorter internode length and/or a smaller leaf area when compared to cucumber plants without the mutation in the Cullin1 gene. A plant that shows the resulting compact growth phenotype is in particular suitable for high-wire cultivation. Furthermore, the invention also relates to the use of a modified cucumber Cullin1 gene or a part thereof for identifying a cucumber plant showing a shorter internode length and/or a smaller leaf area.
